Whether students are beginners picking up an instrument for the first time or intermediate musicians seeking to advance their skillset, Lincoln’s comprehensive and highly adaptable approach to teaching provides the guidance and support necessary to achieve musical aspirations.
“I believe that music lessons should be engaging, challenging, and above all, fun! My primary goal is to create a positive learning environment where students look forward to each session. What I cherish most about teaching is the opportunity to learn from my experiences with students, fostering a mutual growth and understanding of music as an art form. There are few things more rewarding than being a part of someone’s ‘Aha!’ moments as a musician; the kind where you can see their eyes light up having just conquered a challenge that they once thought to be near impossible.”
Acquiring the skills to play and write music is an immensely rewarding and fulfilling pursuit. While the process can sometimes be frustrating, having a dedicated mentor by your side to navigate those challenges can be the difference between achieving your musical aspirations, and quitting within the first few months. Lincoln is committed to being that supportive guide, ensuring students not only progress but also relish the experience of learning music.
